How We Got Started
Deseret Industries opened our very first store in August of 1938. Our purpose then was the same as our purpose now: to provide job training and low-cost goods. Read more about how it all began.
You Are the Why Behind DI
During its first week of operation, Deseret Industries received 179 calls from people wanting to know where and when to donate. Since then shoppers and donors have been an important part of Deseret Industries. Purchases and donations make it possible for us provide job training and help people change their lives.
